As a certified teacher in Texas and with two years experience of teaching/tutoring, I enjoy helping students who are struggling with math. From my experience, students' learning abilities are not all at the same pace; some get it right away and some just need a little more time and explanation from the teacher. Unfortunately, one teacher can only do so much with 25-30 students with less than an hour.
My tutoring methods have 3 components; memorizing, solving, and understanding. Learning by memorizing is good and learning by solving actual problems is even better. However, both steps are meaningless if you don't know or don't understand what's going on. You need to understand what you're doing and why. In another word, what you do should make sense to you. Students who are struggling with math simply because they don't understand it and why do they have to learn math. They got frustrated and just gave up. It doesn't have to be that way. In general, when people understand what they are doing and why, they seems to enjoy it more than they think. Same thing with math. I've been showing students how to memorize formulas, solve problems, and understand each and every step of the solutions. It works every time.
